Description
Light colour woven basket; rectangular shape with flaring sides. It has a checkered design.
History Of Use
No known history on the donor. From past cataloguing, it was stated that this basket was made by the Interior Salish, possibly the Lilloet band. The design is made with Cherry Bark and Spruce root. The Salish weavers used either a bundle or slat foundation. Large, covered rectangular storage baskets are made with slat foundations. The Salish technique was such that if the basket was soaked, it would become water tight and could be used in a method of cooking which utilized hot stones placed in the container. There are Coast and Interior Salish. From Quesnel to the coast, from Vancouver up the Coast of Vancouver Island to Bute Inlet, this is their territory. With such a great size, it was easy to trade, purchase and transport their wares all over the province.

Description
A birch bark basket, oval shape, red cedar colour, with spruce root stitching around the rim, bottom and down one side.
History Of Use
The old card states that this basket was made by Mrs. Abraham in the 1930's and bought by Pat McCammon at the Oliarney garage sale. Nothing is known about Mrs. Abraham at this time. The Athabasca and interior Salish used birch bark to make dishes, ladles, and a variety of storage baskets. They were cut into patterns, folded into shape and sewn with strips of various kinds of bark. This basket was sewn with strips of spruce root. The birch bark is usually coloured from various berries and roots.

Description
Rectangular shape basket with a wave design on all sides in cherry bark. The sides flare slightly.
History Of Use
Salish First Nations people, especially the Interior Salish, excelled in the craft of basketry. They decorated their baskets externally with red and black cherry bark, cedar root, spruce root, and dyed or bleached swamp grass. The dyes came from berries, roots or from burying the spruce root in different soil types for various lengths of time. The 'zig zag' design can represent the wave or arrowheads according to some books.

No known personal history on the donor at this time. From past cataloguing, it was stated only that this basket was made by Interior First Nations people, quite possibly the Salish. The design is made with Cherry bark and Spruce root. The Salish weavers used either a bundle or slat foundation. Large, covered rectangular storage baskets are made with the slat foundations. The Salish technique is such that if the basket was soaked, it would become water tight and could then be used in cooking, by placing hot stones inside. There are Coast & Interior Salish. Their territory is quite expansive and takes in from Quesnel to Vancouver, up the Vancouver Island, and over to Bute Inlet. All the while, it boarders the Carrier tribe. This made it easier to trade and travel to this area.
